NBA trade deadline Clippers end Kevin Garnett trade talks

The Los Angeles Clippers have terminated talks with the Boston Celtics on a Kevin Garnett for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan trade for now.

The Celtics have been eager to continue the conversation on the deal, but league sources said the talks will remain dormant unless Clippers star Chris Paul pushes the issue with management.

Several prominent executives and coaches with championship contenders told Yahoo! Sports they believe the Clippers would become more dangerous with Garnett.

Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro is a proponent of the deal, too, sources said.

The Celtics won't consider moving Garnett to the Clippers for any other combination of players, and won't revisit the talks unless Bledsoe and Jordan are in the package, sources said.
Boston hasn't approached Garnett to waive his no-trade clause without an agreement in place, but there's strong belief he would ultimately agree to it. What's more, Boston could simply trade Paul Pierce and leave Garnett with even less desire to finish his career with a young, rebuilding roster.

Kevin Garnett with Carmelo Anthony make fun of Craig Sager

HOUSTON — Boston Celtics center and Eastern Conference All-Star starter Kevin Garnett who said "No" to the question whether he'd consider waiving his no-trade clause to head to the Los Angeles Clippers in a rumored deal for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan before the Feb. 21 trade deadline, make fun with Sager with Carmelo.

Craig Sager interviewed New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who'll start alongside Garnett and the Miami Heat trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Sunday's midseason classic, and asked him about whether the dust has truly settled between Anthony and Garnett. As you no doubt remember, the two stars were involved in a Jan. 7 on-court dust-up that wound up heading off-court, as Anthony and Garnett barked at one another by the Celtics' team bus in  Madison Square Garden costing Anthony a one-game suspension, but in the aftermath, both Anthony and Garnett insisted there would be no bad blood between them going forward.

Still, with a captive NBA TV audience watching on Saturday, Sager had to ask.

"In the heat of the regular season, obviously, tempers fly and there's a lot of heated arguments," Sager said. "One time during the year, you and Kevin Garnett got into it. As his teammate right now, have you been sharing lockers, sharing stories, getting along with one another?"

Melo immediately turned to call Garnett over.

"I just want to make sure everything's cool with you guys," Sager told Garnett.

"C'mon, man. C'mon, man. C'mon, man," Garnett replied, taking a long hard look at Sager's predictably garish and colorful outfit. "You gonna come in here with that outfit on and ask that type of question?"

As Anthony laughed and Garnett tried to walk away, Sager responded in kind.

"Speaking of outfits, why are you tucking in your pants [into your socks]?" he asked.

"Man, me tucking in socks is nothing compared to this right here," Garnett answered.

"What is this, aqua?" Anthony asked, touching Sager's jacket.

"Yeah, or turquoise," Sager responded.

"What was the influence today? What was your motivation for wearing this today?" Garnett asked.

"To wake up," Sager said, eliciting loud laughter from both Melo and KG.

"What kind of answer is that?" Garnett asked.

Dwight Howard for Rajon Rondo trade discussed with Los Angeles Lakers

Dwight Howard for Rajon Rondo trade discussed with Los Angeles Lakers, trade rumors, NBA trade deadline

There are reports that the Boston Celtics discussed a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers centered around Lakers center Dwight Howard and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.

But any deal remains unlikely, according to two separate reports.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports reported late Friday night that the Celtics and Lakers "engaged in preliminary trade discussions" of a swap highlighted by the two All-Stars. But before you start wondering how Howard and Kevin Garnett would coexist as teammates with seemingly diametrically opposed personalities, two later reports labeled the deal unlikely.

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reported that while the two teams did indeed talk Rondo-for-Howard "at least two weeks ago," it was before Rondo's partially torn ACL ended his season. According to Murphy, the point guard's surgery "seemingly ended any real chance of trade discussions moving beyond the preliminary phase."

A Rondo-for-Howard deal wouldn't work straight up for salary reasons.

It's unlikely Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak would admit having discussions with the Celtics, but, for what it's worth, he denied doing so to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

It's fun to wonder whether Howard and Garnett would form the league's greatest defensive frontcourt or one of its most dysfunctional duos, but the odds of such a fascinating experiment happening seem slim.'s A. Sherrod Blakely reported that while the Lakers and Celtics have held trade discussions, "at no point did the conversation involve a Rondo-for-Howard swap."

Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend

Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend, pistorius arrested

Oscar Pistorius, a South African Paralympic athlete has been arrested over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend at his home in Pretoria, according to local media.

Police said a 26-year-old man, who they have not named, was in custody and a case of murder was being investigated.

The precise circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear. Reports say he may have mistaken her for a burglar.

Pistorius, 26, is known as the "blade runner", and was the first double amputee to run in the Olympics.

The news that he may have killed his girlfriend will shock the country as Pistorius is regarded as one of South Africa's national icons, reports the BBC's Peter Biles from Capetown.

The incident is said to have taken place between 04:00 and 05:00 local time (02:00-03:00 GMT).

A police statement said that a 30-year-old woman was "fatally wounded" in the early hours of Thursday morning at a home in the Silverlakes complex in the Boschkop area of the capital.

The woman had been wounded in her head and upper body. Paramedics were at the house when police arrived, but she died at the scene. A 9mm pistol was recovered.

South Africa has among the highest rates of crime in the world and many residents keep weapons to protect themselves against intruders.

But the country also has a careful vetting process before awarding gun licenses, Erika Gibson of Beeld newspaper told the BBC.

Pistorius races wearing carbon fibre prosthetic blades after he was born without a fibula in both legs.

He reached the 400m semi-finals in the London 2012 Olympics. At the Paralympics he won silver in the T44 200m, gold in the 4x100 relay and gold in the T44 400m, setting a Paralympic record.

For years he dominated in his category at successive Paralympic Games.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee said it had been inundated with questions over the incident, but was in no position to comment.

Ed Warner, head of UK Athletics also reiterated that little was known about the incident but described the reports as "shocking and very sad," adding that: "Pistorius is one of the great icons of Paralympic athletics but also of able-bodied athletics too".

Usain Bolt Beaten

Usain Bolt Beaten, bolt, NBA All-Star Game

Usain Bolt the Jamaican Olympic sprint champion, was beaten in the first race of the 2013 season.

He finished in third place in the 400 meter event at the Camperdown Classic in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica.

The triple gold medallist from both the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics easily won his heat in 46.71 seconds at the Camperdown Classic, but this time Usain Bolt was beaten by two people he knows pretty well, his training partners Warren Weir and Yohan Blake.

Next week, he is scheduled to appear in Texas for the National Basketball Association All-Star Game but his major goal this year is the world championships in Moscow.

Rumor: KG says no thanks to the Nuggets

Kevin Garnett Nuggets, KG nuggets, KG celtics, Kevin Garnett, Boston celtics

Denver Nuggets trade rumors indicate interest in acquiring Kevin Garnett.

Kevin Garnett is everything the Nuggets need. Heck, his scowl alone is more intimidating in the post than all 21 feet of center on Denver’s roster.

So what’s the problem with pushing the idea of a blockbuster trade between Denver and Boston?

Wielding the hammer of a no-trade clause, K.G. wants nothing to do with the Nuggets.

Through his representatives, Garnett has let it be known he has no current interest in the Nuggets.

That’s why it’s pointless to discuss if the Nuggets’ main chip in a trade proposal would be Andre Iguodala, Kenneth Faried or Danilo Gallinari.

Kevin Garnett trade rumors: Boston Celtics trade with LA Clippers close?

Kevin Garnett trade rumors: Boston Celtics trade with LA Clippers close?

The Los Angeles Clippers have contacted the Boston Celtics about a possible trade for forward Kevin Garnett, The Sporting News’ Sean Deveney reported on Sunday. Citing multiple sources, Deveney reported that the Clippers’ offer would center on second-year guard Eric Bledsoe and veteran forward Caron Butler.

The report came as the Celtics beat the Clippers 106-104 in Boston on Sunday, the Celtics’ fourth straight victory since losing star point guard Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season. The Clippers also played without their star point guard in the loss — Chris Paul missed his seventh straight game with a bruised right knee cap.

Any deal would have to be completed by the Feb. 21 trade deadline. It would represent a major push by the Clippers to contend at the top of the Western Conference, while the Celtics would signal that they are ready to rebuild away from a long-time core that includes both Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Aside from Paul, the Clippers have also been hampered by injuries to guard Chauncey Billups and forward Jamal Crawford. Still, they sit third in the Western Conference even after Sunday’s loss, four games behind the San Antonio Spurs.

The Celtics remain comfortably in the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference at 24-23 after their four-game winning streak. In addition to Rondo, they also lost rookie big man Jared Sullinger for the season last week.

Ravens beat 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl

 Baltimore Ravens, David Akers, San Francisco 49ers, Super Bowl

The Ravens hang on for a 34-31 win after a late 49ers rally falls short.

A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation’s biggest sporting event on hold for more 30 minutes Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Flacco threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero-interception postseason. Jacoby Jones returned the second-half kickoff 108 yards, a Super Bowl record, to give Baltimore a 22-point lead.

Moments later, lights lining the indoor arena faded, making it difficult to see. When action resumed, the 49ers scored 17 consecutive points, getting as close as 31-29. But Baltimore stopped San Francisco on fourth-and-goal from the 5 with under 2 minutes left.

Baltimore Ravens Lead 49ers 21-6 in Super Bowl Second Quarter

David Akers kicked a 27-yard field goal for the San Francisco 49ers, who trail the Baltimore Ravens 21-6 after the second quarter of the Super Bowl.

Joe Flacco capped the Ravens’ opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin at the Superdome in New Orleans before the 49ers pulled within 7-3 on a 36-yard field goal in the first quarter by Akers.

Ravens quarterback Flacco then found Dennis Pitta with a 1- yard pass for a touchdown midway through the second quarter before throwing a 56-yard scoring pass to Jacoby Jones to extend Baltimore’s lead to 21-3.

Who will win Super Bowl XLVII Ravens-49ers

Sprinter's speed makes San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick truly dangerous. Baltimore's Joe Flacco is a classic drop-back passer.

Ravens Anquan Boldin has been playing great this postseason and his teammate Torrey Smith will play as a deep threat, that can mean trouble for the 49ers.

Raven's Lewis has 44 tackles in the past three playoff wins and he has been great in the Raven's defense. The Raven's have a pretty good front seven that can dominate the game.

San Francisco 49ers will need to run with Kaepernick's speed, he can dominate the game. San Francisco has the most talented defense in the NFL.

Expert Pick:

 Super Bowl XLVII, Ravens, 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, Anquan Boldin, Ray Lewis, NFL, San Francisco, Baltimore
